Personal Injury Lawsuit
After being injured in an accident, you may be concerned about your future as you face mounting medical bills, possibly permanent disability, and more. To be able to face these challenges, you will need financial compensation and support.
If another party is responsible for your injuries, a lawsuit may need to be filed in order to force them to take responsibility. It is important to note, however, that a lawsuit being filed does not mean you will have to go to court. Many cases are settled before they go to court. If, however, a pretrial agreement cannot be reached, our attorneys are experienced litigators who know how to prepare strong cases for the California courts.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
After a serious accident, you may be wondering just how much your personal injury case is worth? How much compensation can I get for my pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills? These are questions that the legal team at Curtis Legal Group are frequently asked, often in the first phone call from someone recently injured in an accident.
The facts of each case bring unique answers to these questions, and these answers may not be easily determined without in-depth analysis. This is why it is essential to involve reputable and experienced legal counsel as soon as possible after you have been injured in an accident.
Personal Injury Claims
Many types of accidents can cause serious injuries that may be eligible for a civil lawsuit. If someone else caused an accident that injured you, you may have a claim for damages against the responsible party or parties.
Personal injury cases often arise from serious car or truck accidents. There are, however, many other serious injuries that could bring about a cause of action against a responsible party, such as workplace injuries, slip and fall injuries, and dog attack injuries. In each of these cases, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation from one or more parties.
Our trial attorneys are skilled at investigating the facts of your situation and acquiring all the evidence needed to build the strongest case possible. We will also find every person or party responsible for your injuries to make sure that you recover as much as possible.
Personal Injury Damages – What Does The “Worth” of an Injury Case Mean?
From the cost of an ambulance ride to doctor’s visits, surgeries, hospital stays, medication costs, medical assistance devices, and more, medical bills will pile up. A serious injury can keep you out of work for days, weeks, or months at a time; or, in some cases, catastrophic injuries can prevent you from returning to work at all.
This could mean not getting paid your usual wages and possibly not being able to support your family. As your personal injury attorneys, rest assured we will work to ensure you and your family get the compensation you deserve to fully recover from your accident. Our team will not only make sure to account for all medical expenses incurred, but future medical treatments, if necessary, as well.
You may also be entitled to lost wages from missing work, both in the past and in the future. If you cannot return to work or can only work in a diminished capacity, these damages will also be calculated and sought from the responsible party or parties. Our lawyers work with excellent financial experts and we will fight for any future losses you may be owed as well as every related expense you’ve incurred so far.
When our legal team discusses what a case is “worth,” we are typically referring to either what an insurance company will pay to settle that case or what a judge or jury would award in a verdict after a trial. Each injury case will require a thorough investigation. That investigation will include determining how the accident occurred, who is at fault, what injuries were sustained by the victim(s), the medical treatment involved, the cost of that treatment, any long-term disabilities that may have been suffered, and whether there is a wage loss, among a variety of other factors. These costs can add up to become a significant financial burden.
Our legal team will then factor in your pain and suffering. There are some injuries that cannot be seen after an accident but can be just as serious and debilitating as a physical injury. Pain and suffering are an important part of analyzing what your case may be worth and can include the physical pain and discomfort suffered as well as any mental distress. Post-traumatic stress is incredibly common after being in a serious accident. You may be scared to return to the scene of the accident, taking measures to avoid where the accident occurred, or even be afraid to leave the house. Calculating your pain and suffering, including any mental anguish you are experiencing, is critical to calculating how much your injury case may be worth.
